I Wanna Slip Back

I wanted to bloom
in the lap of green.
Intolerable it is to
stay as unseen!

I lift up my head
and cast my look.
I see the glum shade,
thru the mirror of brook.

No longer, I stay there,
where joys I lack.
To sleep, in the deep,
I wanna slip back.

    Beautiful poem Neela. Beautiful way you have compared nature to life.
    This poem left me wondered...
    Where I wanna slip back
    Is it to the lap of green earth, which is full of joy...
    or looking for joy thru the mirror of brook....Loved reading.. (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
